We have partnered with business, community and government to help launch Australia’s first ever financial literacy awareness week - MoneySmart Week (September 2 – 8, 2012). This independent, not-for-profit national initiative aims to promote the importance of financial literacy by raising awareness of the programs and support available.
While many Australians would like to improve their financial situation, sometimes they don’t know where to start. We are encouraging our customers and staff to be ‘money smart' by promoting the use of MoneySmart Week’s free online Money Health Check tool and providing seminars on money management.
Since launching the first Australian Adult Financial Literacy Survey in 2003, we have invested significantly in partnerships to help people better manage their money. Our approach has been recognised at the MoneySmart Week Awards. Our matched savings partnership developed with the Brotherhood of St Laurence - Saver Plus - gained the Community award and our Survey of Adult Financial Literacy the Research category.
